Office building from the best of the tree: Innovative future building made of wood shines with veneer from europlac

Bonn/Dornbirn. Dornbirn in Vorarlberg is richer by a future-oriented innovation: the office building "Sägen 6" is located at Sägerstraße 6. "That in and of itself is nothing special, but on the one hand the building is made of wood, a sustainable building material, and on the other hand the interior impresses with the best a tree has to offer: The finest veneer," says the managing director of the Initiative Furnier + Natur (IFN) and long-time housing analyst, Ursula Geismann.

The builder of the impressive wooden building is F.M. Hämmerle Holding. The 200 solid cubic meters of wood required for the construction were cut in the company's own forest and assembled by Fussenegger Holzbau. Inside, the company europlac from Tettnang, among others, took the reins. Special INOIS®MICRO acoustic panels with microperforation were used as wall cladding. "This results in a harmonious interplay of positive acoustic properties and a modern look, as is desired nowadays," says Geismann. The support panels - 16-millimeter-thick MDF boards - were veneered with silver fir. The Bau wood comes from Vorarlberg and the Bregenz Forest. For the surface of the panels, a homogeneous appearance was important to the client. Special attention was paid to this when selecting the veneer sheets. Durable protection of the wood is provided by a treatment with hard wax with an effective UV blocker. "The result is really something to behold. Anyone moving around the ultra-modern office building has direct, visual contact with nature. This makes it easy to work even in stressful times, and breaks are particularly relaxing even in a building that is otherwise dedicated to work," concludes Ursula Geismann. (DS)
